Louise Slaughter, serving her 13th term as Representative of the 28th Congressional District of New York State, focused on the history of transportation in New York State and it's importance for creating Buffalo and the region. This background provides a context for Congresswoman Slaughter's leadership in support of high-speed rail. This was followed by a Q&A session which covered a wide range of topics including a focus on improved rail service connecting Buffalo with New York City, Chicago AND Toronto - one of the goals of C-SAAHN.
